World Time Eco-Drive Radio Controlled Watch
<Radio Signal Reception Function>
This watch is a radio controlled watch, which receives the standard time radio waves that are
broadcast from radio wave transmitters in four regions, Japan, the USA, Europe (Germany) and
China, and uses these waves to automatically correct the time and date.
(p. 18)
Modes where reception is
possible: CAL, TME and
RX-S
i Automatic reception: The watch will automatically receive the radio wave up to three
times a day, at 2 a.m., 3 a.m. and 4 a.m., and adjust the time and date accordingly.
The 4 a.m. automatic reception can be changed to any time of the day.
i On demand reception: The radio wave can be received at any time of the day to adjust
the time and date.
In the event that a radio signal cannot be received, the watch can be manually set and will
operate keeping time within +/- 15 seconds per month.

<World Time Function>
Important Points Regarding Radio Wave Reception
i UTC (Coordinated Universal Time), the time and date of 43 cities (or regions) from around
the world and one city (any can be set) can be displayed and easily called up. It is
convenient when traveling overseas on business or vacation.
Daylight saving time can also be set.
(p. 46)
There are two methods to receive radio signals during normal operation, Automatic and
On Demand.
The internal unidirectional antenna may be weakened by geography or building
structures, which may require the user to place the watch near a window.
When receiving radio waves:
* Remove the watch from your wrist
* Face the 9:00 position of the watch towards a window
* Place the watch on a stable surface
* Do not move the watch during this process. Movement of the watch may cause
incomplete reception. During radio reception, the second hand of the watch moves in
reception level.
* When reception is complete, the watch will return to movement at one-second
intervals.
Reception can take from about 2 minutes to a maximum of 15 minutes.
<Solar Power Function>
This is a multi-functional Eco-Drive watch, which is equipped with a solar power function for
powering the watch by converting light energy into electric energy.
i Charge level display function: This function displays the charge level in four grades, to
give an approximate indication of how much the secondary battery is charged.
(p. 40)
i Power saving function: The watch is equipped with two power saving functions.
If the watch face is not exposed to light for 30 minutes or longer, all the LCD display
sections turn off (Power saving 1). If the watch face is then not exposed to light for one
week or longer, the hands are stopped in order to minimize the watch’s power consumption
(Power saving 2).

[Checking the Reference Position]
Before using the watch, confirm that the hands are aligned with
“0”, similar to when setting weighing scales
i The reference position may become misaligned when
the watch is exposed to strong magnetism, static
electricity or impacts. Even if radio waves are received,
the correct time will not be indicated unless the watch
hands are aligned to the correct reference position.
Check that the hands are properly aligned with “0”.
Examples of magnetic products that can affect
the watch.
• Health products (for example, medical necklaces and waist
bands that have magnetic fields)
• Refrigerators (magnetic part of the door)
• Electromagnetic cookers
• Bags (with magnet fasteners)
• Mobile phones (speaker part)
Keep the watch away from items similar to those above.

W 4. Radio Signal Reception
Three types of radio signal reception are possible: automatic reception, on demand
reception and recovery automatic reception.
There are three modes where reception is possible: time (TME), calendar (CAL) and
receive set (RX-S). The watch cannot receive signals in any other mode.
Display the home city in digital display 2 when receiving the radio wave.
• Reception is not possible unless the crown is in the normal position.
• If the home city is “UTC”, reception is not possible.
• Reception is not possible during chronograph or timer measurement.
• The reception level may change depending on the surrounding environment. While
referring to reception level (H, M or L), change the watch location, direction and angle
to try to receive the radio wave.
• When the watch is receiving the radio wave, as a general rule, all of the hands will
stop. To check the time, hold the lower right button (A) for 2 seconds to cancel radio
wave reception. The hands will then return to the current time.
• Even while the radio wave is being received, the second hand will continue to rotate to
align the minute hand with the current time. This shortens the time it takes to set the
correct time.
18
Automatic reception
• It is not necessary to operate buttons during automatic reception.
• The watch will automatically receive the radio wave every day at 2
a.m., 3 a.m. and 4 a.m.
o71)
• The 4 a.m. reception can be changed to any time of the day. (p. 68o
o71)
• Reception can be set to OFF. (p. 68o
<Receiving the radio signals>
1. Remove the watch from your wrist and place on
a stable surface in a location, such as near a
window, from which radio waves can be easily
received, pointing the 9:00 side (reception
antenna position) in the direction of the radio
wave transmitter.
2. The watch will automatically receive the radio
wave every day at 2 a.m.
An antenna for receiving the radio
signals is located inside the watch
(on the 9:00 position).
19
On Demand Reception (Manual Reception)
• Signals can be received at any time.
[Mode hand position
when receiving]
<Receiving the radio signals>
1. Pull the crown out to position 1 and turn to align the
mode hand with the CAL, TME or RX-S position.
2. Return the crown to the normal position.
3. Remove the watch from your wrist and place on a
stable surface near a window where the radio signal
can be easily received.
4. Point the 9:00 side of the watch in the direction of the radio wave transmitter, and hold
down the lower right button (A) for more than 2 seconds. Release when the
confirmation tone sounds and the second hand stops at RX. The second hand will then
move to H, M or L, and reception will begin.
* Do not move the watch during reception.
5. When the radio wave has been properly received, the second hand will automatically
move from H, M or L to the time that was received, all the hands will be corrected,
and the second hand will return to 1-second interval movement.
* Reception can take a maximum of 15 minutes.
20
Recovery Automatic Reception (Automatic Reception)
• If the watch stops due to insufficient charging, expose the watch to
sunlight to recharge it. When the watch is recharged sufficiently, it will
automatically receive the radio wave once.
* Regularly charge your radio controlled watch so it does not become insufficiently
charged.
The radio wave reception can be checked with “Confirming
Reception Status”.
(p. 26)
21
<Storing Your Radio Controlled Watch>
If the watch has received insufficient light for charging or has been kept in a dark
location for an extended period of time (one week or more), the Power Save Feature of
the watch is activated and the hands of the watch stop. Even though the watch will not
show movement, the correct time is kept in memory. When the watch is in the Power
Save mode, it will continue to keep the correct time internally. In some instances,
“Automatic Reception” may not be successful due to a weak signal reception. When
resuming use of the watch after the power save mode has been activated for an extended
period of time, you can cancel the Power Save function by placing the watch in light
sufficient for charging and performing the “On Demand” reception process to correctly
set the time and date. (Refer to page 96 for information on the Power Save Function.)
W 5. Poor Reception Areas
It may not be possible to receive radio waves under environmental conditions where reception
is difficult or in areas susceptible to radio noise, such as those shown in the illustrations below.
While referring to the reception level display, try to find a location with better reception.
j Inside reinforced concrete
buildings or underground
j Near high-tension electrical
lines, railway overhead wires

[What is daylight saving time?]
This is a time system where the clocks are put forward an hour during the summer, when the
daylight hours are longer.
Whether or not the system is used and the length of use differs between countries and regions.
i To change automatically to daylight saving time by receiving the radio
wave
• By setting the daylight saving time reception setting in RX-S mode to AU, when the
radio wave is received, the time will be automatically updated with the daylight saving
time information.
* The home city must be a city within the reception area.
* The timing for changing to daylight saving time can vary depending on the city or
region. There may be cases when the time is not changed on the appropriate date.

A. Navigation Calculator
1. Calculation of time required
Problem: How long does it take an airplane flying at 180 knots to fly a distance of 450
nautical miles?
Solution: Set the 18 mark on the outside scale to the SPEED INDEX (Y). At this
time, the point on the inside scale that is aligned with 45 on the outside scale
indicates (2:30), and the answer is 2 hours and 30 minutes.
Remaining time: This indicates that 20 minutes remain until 9:25.
80
81
2. Speed (Ground Speed) Calculation
Problem: What is the speed (ground speed) of an airplane when it takes 1 hour and 20
minutes to fly a distance of 240 nautical miles?
Solution: Align the 24 on the outside scale with 1:20 (80) on the inside scale. At this
time, 18 is aligned with the SPEED INDEX (Y) on the inside scale, and the
answer is 180 Kt.
82
3. Flying distance calculation
Problem: What is the flying distance traveled in 40 minutes at a speed of 210 knots?
Solution: Align the 21 on the outside scale with the SPEED INDEX (Y) of the inside
scale. The 40 of the inside scale is now pointing to 14, and the answer is 140
nautical miles.
83
4. Fuel consumption rate calculation
Problem: If 120 gallons of fuel are consumed in 30 minutes’ flying time, what is the
fuel consumption rate?
Solution: Align the 12 of the outside scale with 30 of the inside scale. The SPEED
INDEX (Y) now points to 24, and the answer is 240 gallons per hour.
84
5. Fuel consumption calculation
Problem: How much fuel is consumedin 6 hours at a fuel consumption rate of 250
gallons per hour?
Solution: Align the 25 of the outside scale with the inside scale’s SPEED INDEX (Y)
of the inside scale. The 6:00 is aligned with 15, and the answer is 1500
gallons.
85
6. Maximum flying hours
Problem: With a fuel consumption rate of 220 gallons per hour and a fuel supply of
550 gallons, what is the maximum number of flying hours?
Solution: Align the 22 of the outside scale with the inside scale’s SPEED INDEX (Y)
of the inside scale. The 55 of the outside scale is now aligned with 2:30, and
the answer is 2 hours and 30 minutes.
86
7. Conversion
Problem: How do you convert 30 miles into nautical miles and kilometers?
Answer: Align the 30 on the outside scale with the STAT (Y) mark on the inside
scale. At this time, 26 nautical miles is aligned at the NAUT (Y) mark on
the inside scale, while the answer of 48.2 kilometers is aligned at the
kilometers on the inside scale.

Solution: Align 20 on the outside scale with 10 on the inside scale, and read the
outside scale at the 30 mark which is aligned with 15 of the inside scale.
Figure the number of decimal places, and the answer is 300.
Remember: decimal places cannot be read on this scale.
88
2. Division
Problem: 250/20
Solution: Align 25 on the outside scale with 20 on the inside scale. On the outside
scale read the 12.5 mark that is aligned with 10 on the inside scale. figure the
number of decimal places, and the answer is 12.5.
89
3. Reading Ratios
Problem: 30/20 = 60/x
Solution: Align 30 on the outside scale with 20 on the inside scale. At this time, the
answer of 40 can be read from the inside scale corresponding to 60 on the
outside scale. In addition, the ratio of the value on the outside scale to the
value on the inside scale is 30:20 at all positions on the scales.
90
4. Determining Square Root
Problem: What is the square root of 225?
Solution: Rotate the scales so that the value on the inside scale corresponding to 22.5
on the outside scale is equal to the value on the outside scale corresponding
to 10 on the inside scale, and read off the answer of 15 at that location.

W 24. Solar Power Function
This watch uses a secondary battery to store electrical energy.
When the watch is fully charged, it will run for about 6 months.
<Ensuring best operation of the watch>
Always store the watch in a bright location for best results.
j Wearing clothes with long sleeves makes it difficult for the watch to get the
necessary light, resulting in insufficient charging.
We recommended that you charge the watch for a long time in direct sunlight once a
month.
[Caution] Do not charge on surfaces that can easily become hot, such as a car
dashboard.
j An effective way of charging the watch is to keep it in a
bright location when you are not wearing it, such as
near a window where it can receive direct sunlight.
92
93
W 25. Characteristics of the Solar Powered Watch
i When the watch is insufficiently charged, the indication will be changed as follows:
[Normal display]
* 1. When the watch stopped due to insufficient charging
• It takes at least 30 minutes to recharge sufficiently to perform recovery automatic reception, even
if the watch is being exposed to light.
After recovery, refer to “Guide to Charging Time” (p. 100) and sufficiently charge the watch.
* 2. If the watch failed to perform recovery automatic reception
• The time is incorrect even if the second hand moves at 1-second intervals, so after fully charging
the watch, set the time manually or perform on demand reception.
[Recovery automatic reception]
[Insufficient charge warning]
The watch has been
insufficiently charged
because the watch face,
which contains the solar
cell, has not received
sufficient light.
The insufficient
charge warning (a
2-second interval
movement)
continues for more
than 3 days.
The watch will
stop due to an
insufficient
charging.
Sufficiently charge
by exposing the
watch face, which
contains the solar
cell to light.*1
2-second interval
movement
The second hand starts to move in 2-second intervals
and the
mark flashes in digital display 1.
94
When a radio signal has been
successfully received*2
When the watch is recharged
sufficiently, it will receive the radio
signal automatically once.
95
A. Power Saving Function
<Canceling the power saving function>
If the watch face is not exposed to light for a long time, the power saving function is activated
to minimize the battery consumption.
The power saving function will be automatically canceled when the watch face is
exposed to light.
• Power saving 1: When power is not generated for more than 30 consecutive minutes, the
digital displays go off to save power.
• Power saving 2: When the power saving 1 condition continues for 7 days or longer, to save
power, the hour hand, minute hand, second hand and 24-hour hand move to
the reference position, and the charge level indicator and UTC hands (hour
and minute) stop in their current positions.
• The correct time continues to be kept inside the watch.
• The alarm tone will not sound.
• When power saving 1 is canceled, the digital display is restored.
• After the power saving 2 has been canceled, the hands will rapidly move to the current
time and return to 1-second interval movement.
• If the watch is insufficiently charged, the second hand will begin the 2-second interval
movement. Return the second hand to 1-second interval movement by sufficiently
charging the watch.
• Power saving is cancelled if the insufficient charge warning function activates during
power saving mode.

B. Insufficient Charge Warning
Function
When the charge level indicator reaches level 0, the
second hand’s movement changes from 1-second
intervals to 2-second intervals and the
mark
flashes in digital display 1 to show that the watch is
insufficiently charged.
The watch will stop due to insufficient charging about 3
days after starting the 2-second interval movement if
kept in a place with no light.
j If the charging insufficiency occurs during radio signal reception, the operation will
stop automatically, the watch will return to the time before the operation, and 2second interval movement will begin.
Regularly charge your radio controlled watch so it does not become insufficiently
charged.
2-second
interval movement
[Caution] During 2-second interval movement, the digital displays and watch operations
change as follows.
• The time cannot be adjusted manually, or by using automatic reception or on demand
reception.
• Push button operations are not possible.
• All modes change to time mode.
• The alarm tone and confirmation tone will not sound. (When the timer, chronograph or
alarm is used)
• The LED lights will not come on.
• The chronograph and timer are forcibly reset and cannot be operated.
98
C. Overcharging Prevention Function
When the secondary battery becomes fully charged by exposing the watch face to light,
the overcharging prevention function is automatically activated to prevent the battery
from being charged further.
No matter how much the watch is charged, it will not affect the secondary battery,
timekeeping, functions or performance of the watch.
99
D. Guide to Charging Time
The charging time varies according to the model (including the color of the watch face).

E. Handling Your Solar Powered Watch
WARNING
Handling the secondary battery
j Do not remove the secondary battery from the watch yourself, unless unavoidable.
If you must remove the battery, store it out of reach of children to avoid accidental
ingestion. If the secondary battery is ingested, consult a doctor immediately.
j Do not throw away with regular trash.
Doing so could cause a fire or environmental damage. Follow the collection
procedures as specified by your local authority.
WARNING
Do not use anything other than the specified secondary
battery
j The watch will not operate if incorrect battery types are inserted.
Never use a regular silver battery. The battery could overcharge during the charging
process and burst, causing damage to the watch or injuries to the wearer.
102
CAUTION
Charging precautions
j Do not charge the watch in a high-temperature environment (about 60°C / 140°F or
more).
Overheating while charging can cause the watch exterior to become discolored, the
watch to deform or the movement to be damaged.
Example:
• Charging close to incandescent lighting, halogen lamps, or other lighting sources
that easily become hot.
• Charging on surfaces that can easily become hot, such as a car dashboard.
j When charging with incandescent lighting, halogen lamps, or other lighting sources
that easily become hot, place the watch at least 50 cm (20 in.) away from the source
to avoid overheating.

WARNING: Water-resistance performance
• Water-resistance for daily use (to 3 atmospheres): This type of watch is water-resistant to
minor exposure to water. For example, you may wear the watch while washing your face;
however, it is not designed for use underwater.
• Upgraded water-resistance for daily use (to 5 atmospheres): This type of watch is waterresistant to moderate exposure to water. You may wear the watch while swimming;
however, it is not designed for use while skin diving.
• Upgraded water-resistance for daily use (to 10/20 atmospheres): This type of watch may be
used for skin diving; however, it is not designed for scuba or saturated diving using helium
gas.
• If seawater enters the watch, place the watch in a box or plastic bag and immediately take it
in for repair. Otherwise, pressure inside the watch will increase, and parts (crystal, crown,
buttons, etc.) may come off.
CAUTION: Keep your watch clean.
• Leaving dust and dirt deposited between the case and crown may result in difficulty in
pulling the crown out. Rotate the crown while in its normal position, from time to time, to
loosen dust and dirt and then brush it off.
• Dust and dirt tend to be deposited in gaps in the back of the case or band.
Deposited dust and dirt may cause corrosion and soil your clothing. Clean the watch
occasionally.
CAUTION
• Be sure to use the watch with the crown pressed in (normal position). If your watch has a
screw-lock type crown, be sure to tighten the crown completely.
• Do NOT operate the crown or button with wet fingers or when the watch is wet. Water may
enter the watch and compromise water-resistance.
• If the watch is used in seawater, rinse with fresh water afterward and wipe with a dry cloth.
• If moisture has entered the watch, or if the inside of the crystal is fogged up and does not
become clear within a day, immediately take the watch to your dealer or Citizen Service
Center for repair. Leaving the watch in such a state will allow corrosion to form inside.
112
Cleaning the Watch
• Use a soft cloth to wipe off dirt, perspiration and water from the case and crystal .
• Use a soft, dry cloth to wipe off perspiration and dirt from the leather band.
• To clean a metal, plastic, or rubber watchband, wash away dirt with mild soap and water.
Use a soft brush to remove dust and dirt jammed in the gaps in the metal band. If your
watch is not water-resistant, take it to your dealer.
NOTE: Avoid using solvents (thinner, benzine, etc.), as they may damage the finish.
113
CAUTION: Operating environment
• Use the watch within the operating-temperature range specified in the instruction manual.
Using the watch where temperatures are outside the specified range, may result in
deterioration of functions or even stoppage of the watch.
• Do NOT use the watch in places where it is exposed to high temperature, such as in a sauna.
Doing so may result in a skin burn.
• Do NOT leave the watch in a place where it is exposed to high temperature, such as the
glove compartment or dash-board of a car.
Doing so may result in deterioration of the watch, such as deformation of plastic parts.
• Do NOT place the watch close to a magnet.
Timekeeping will become inaccurate if you place the watch close to magnetic health
equipment such as a magnetic necklace or a magnetic latch of a refrigerator door or handbag
clasp or the earphone of a mobile phone. If this has occurred, move the watch away from the
magnet and reset the time.
• Do NOT place the watch close to household appliances that generate static electricity.
Timekeeping may become inaccurate if the watch is exposed to strong static electricity, such
as is emitted from a TV screen.
• Do NOT subject the watch to a strong shock such as dropping it onto a hard floor.
114
• Avoid using the watch in an environment where it may be exposed to chemicals or corrosive
gases.
If solvents, such as thinner and benzine, or substances containing such solvents come in
contact with the watch, discoloration, melting, cracking, etc. may result. If the watch comes
in contact with mercury used in thermometers, the case, band or other parts may become
discolored.
Periodical inspections
Your watch needs inspection once in every two or three years for safety and long use.
To keep your watch water-resistant, the packing needs to be replaced regularly.
Other parts need to be inspected and replaced if necessary.
Ask for Citizen geuine parts upon replacement.
